On January 1, 2018, a new Suffolk County law will go into effect, charging a five-cent fee for plastic and paper carryout bags, at a variety of retail stores. Those in support of the fee believe it will protect the environment. Those against view it as a tax that will hurt local businesses. Would you support Nassau County imposing a five-cent fee on plastic and paper carryout bags?

NYC promotes new businesses and help them navigate the red tape to open as quickly as possible. Why doesn't Nassau County have something similar?

Wtf?

Why would any not vote in favor of this? Nassau is not business friendly. Just look at all the vacant stores wherever you go. There is no incentive to start a business and it's something Nassau should pioneer. Taxes on a business are much better than taxes on the average citizen.

We need to Stand Up, Bind Together and Make Nassau Great Again.
